You are having a boot problem. Sometimes there are beep codes or error lights that can help you to diagnose the cause. Go to support.dell.com and enter your system service tag #, then search troubleshooting for boot problem or startup problem or no boot and follow the advice for your operating system...
Here's a more general startup troubleshooter that may help you.

Why my dell 4700c desk top. have dotted horizontal lines on start up?


Try securing the connection between the computer and the display. Try pushing the connector into the ports on both ends. If there are screws on the connectors, make sure they all of them are tightened.

What you have is a cracked screen. The LCD panel is cracked and is leaking fluids to the rest of your screen, those dots will spread too. This happens when u pick up the computer from the screen. You could try finding a replacement laptop screen, or get a new computer. They aren't that expensive. Make sure you save your hard drive tho!

It turned on and said touch dot several times now the screen is off center


Turn off Garmin. Pres top left screen and hold. While holding, turn unit on but keep holding corner. Once the black dot shows up again, use the eraser part of a pencil to chase the dot. That would give exact measurements. Your fingers may be wet or too large and are offsetting the screen area readings. Good Luck

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.


It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.

Dell E171FPb monitor turns on, but that's it


Hi Letneper,

Hope this will give you hints. Some monitors have standby mode or screen saver feature and or self test feature when not connected to video input of your PC or CPU. Except this problem did not occur at first use. You can turn this off like other monitors manually at OSD (on-screen display) settings if available. No more no less if it works fine with PC or CPU on then there's nothing to worry.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano
